Spanish Artist Opens Exhibition At Christopher Grimes Gallery In Santa Monica:

Christopher Grimes Gallery at 916 Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica will today open its newest exhibition called “Future Anterior” featuring the work of Carlos Bunga.

This will be the first exhibition with the gallery for Bunga who lives and works in Barcelona.

“Future Anterior” will feature two distinct works.

In the main gallery, Bunga will create a site- specific installation based on the idea of memory, the present, and the future using the ordinary, unassuming materials he has become known for: cardboard and adhesive tape.

The process-oriented nature inherent in this work forms a fusion between the gallery’s existing space and the abstract space that he creates, resulting in a finished installation involving an extreme degree of precision coupled with aesthetic care and delicacy.

In addition to his architectural structures, Bunga also works in drawing, photography, painting, and sculpture.

In the south gallery, he will debut a slide projection piece titled Skin. In this work, the projected images of the surfaces of his paintings touch upon both the plastic and organic components of his practice.

After studying Fine Arts at the Escola Superior de Arte e Design in Caldas da Rainha in Portugal, Bunga first attracted international attention with his work at the contemporary art biennial Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian, Spain (2004).

Since then, he has been awarded a visual arts grant by the Fundacin Marcelino Bot’n, Spain (2006) and has had solo shows of his work at Museu Serralves, Porto, Portugal (2012); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2011); Miami Art Museum, Miami, FL (2009); and Museo de Arte ContemporanÎa de Vigo, Spain (2009).

Group exhibitions include University Art Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA (2012); Warsaw Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, Poland (2009); Museu d’Arte Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona, Spain (2009); Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno (IVAM), Valencia, Spain (2008); New Museum, New York, NY (2007); Justus Lipsius Building, Brussels, Belgium (2007); Artists Space, New York, NY (2005); and as part of inSite_05 at San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, CA (2005).
